Take Pride - Take Action

Please be advised that all programming is temporarily suspended while staff are furloughed due to Covid-19.  We expect this suspension to last March 25-May 5.  Please check back for updates, and in the meantime, you may reach out to our Executive Director, Tom Ethans, with questions/concerns:  tom@takepride.mb.ca or 204 792 5464

In the interim, we ask all of you to help carry our mission: 

Help a friend or neighbour in need. 

Take a bucket or bag with you on your daily walks, and pick up litter. Remember to wear gloves! 

Spread messages of hope and goodwill in your neighbourhood—use sidewalk chalk to write a message or create a cheerful drawing, or show off your crafty side with window art. T

Take care of each other.

Take Pride-Take Action is a free school presentation offered by Take Pride Winnipeg! to inform students of some of the issues currently facing our planet and how they can contribute to positive solutions to these issues.

The presentation is a series of short video clips on various topics related to how everyone can live more sustainably. It covers subjects such as water consumption and shortages, energy conservation, landfills and waste reduction methods. The messages are delivered in age appropriate ways to optimize students’ understanding. Presentation length is also tailored to the age of the audience.

Students are actively encouraged to ask questions and bring forth their ideas. With each issue discussed students are taught what they can do to take action and make a difference in taking better care of our planet.

At the end of each presentation, the students are treated to a visit from Louie the Lion and they get the chance to join his Pride Club.
